THE Association of Spanish airlines AECA based in Palma, has recommended a change in the way in which residents of the Balearic and Canary Islands receive discounts when travelling to and from the islands, according to Ultima Hora.
They currently pay 50 per cent of the commercial fare, but according to AECA president Felipe Navío this does not benefit all islanders alike, as those who decide to travel first class receive a much larger cash discount. To this end therefore, he wants to see a new formula where a set amount is deducted from the fare regardless of the class of travel booked.
The Director General of the Balearic ports and airports, Xavier Ramis, is reported to welcome the suggestion, although he wants to ensure that those undertaking urgent journeys at short notice, possibly for health reasons are not penalised and end up paying highly inflated prices.
